Elephants may not be the ideal home pet, but in this tour, you'll get to experience what it's like taking care of this animal for one whole morning.
Besides elephant riding, elephant day care brings you closer to the elephants. Instead of hopping on to their backs, you'll get a chance to take care of them during your stay. Your tour begins at 7:30am where you'll be picked-up from your hotel. Before you get to interact with the elephants, you'll go through elephant school. During this time, you'll learn about the history of the camp and the incredible creatures. Next, you'll prepare the elephants' food and make vitamins for elephants, before you are able to meet the pachyderms. You'll take the elephants for a walk and see them eat, roll, and play in the grass. Before you return to your hotel, you'll give the elephants a nice bath. Transportation to and from is included in this package. All you have to do is treat the animals well.

Terrific company to do a tour with. Pick up was bang on time and the Tour Guide 'K' was a really nice guy that made everyone feel comfortable and was highly knowledgeable about the Elephant Rescue centre, the work they do and lots of facts about elephants. Loved seeing Elephants treated well and clearly the staff love the Elephants and enjoy playing and bathing with them as much as the Elephants enjoy it. Fantastic hands on experience.
I had some free time in the morning during my visit to Thailand, so I decided to book myself this tour. And you know what? I'll probably take it again. The elephants were so happy and healthy, and when I played with them a little bit, they were such good sports. I had a lovely time with them and believe me, I'll never forget the fun times I had here.
